Ellen Dissanayake speaks on October 29th

Ellen Dissanayake will be giving next week's PNCA MFA in Applied Craft & Design lecture. Dissanayake is "an independent scholar, author, and lecturer... whose Darwinian viewpoint provides a broader understanding of the arts than is customary in most theoretical approaches: the arts are integral to human nature and they evolved to help individuals adapt to their physical and social environments."

Scholar lecture • 6:30-7:30pm • October 29
PNCA Craft & Design Studios • The Bison Building • 421 NE 10th

She is the author of Homo Aestheticus: Where Art Comes from and Why
